An Election Day Surprise: ‘Halo 4’ Dated for November 6th

Microsoft and 343 want you to cast your vote for the Master Chief this November.

That’s right, folks, the Master Chief comes out deep sleep November 6th as 343 Industries unleashes the game upon the world. [Full disclosure: I was formerly an employee at 343, so please take any excess enthusiasm on this front with that in mind].

343 Industries revealed the date this morning through Halo Waypoint along with the announcement that members of the Halo 4 dev team will be joining Conan O’Brien on his TBS talk show tonight. I can’t imagine 343 sending Frank O’Connor and Kiki Wolfkill on Conan without some kind of new video to bring along.

Halo 4 follows the Master Chief in the aftermath of the previous trilogy which saw humanity draw its conflict with the alien species that make up the Covenant to a close while bringing an end to the known Halo ring threat. What’s in store for the Master Chief and his AI companion Cortana? Well, you’ll have to wait until November to find out.
